Ladysmith Historical Society’s Chronicles From The Past

The pupils of the Ladysmith public school have again put forth an effort to show, in a substantial way, their love for the Empire

June 1915 – The pupils of the Ladysmith public school have again put forth an effort to show, in a substantial way, their love for the Empire, not by an entertainment, but by denying themselves some entertainment, in order that they might have a gift to offer to the King on his birthday.

Their birthday gift amounted to $28.60, part of which has been subscribed to the fund for the British prisoners in Germany, and the remainder to the Red Cross Society of Ladysmith.

It will always be a pleasant memory to the children who contributed toward this worthy cause, that in time of the Empire’s great need, they too shared in bearing the Empire’s burden.
